Lovely easy hike
Lovely island hike - mostly flat, great views, easy with kids. Fairly quiet walk with relatively few others in the trail.
Cool coastal camp
My husband, daughter, dog, and I needed a last-minute camp spot to escape the heat with our teardrop trailer. Rosa and Peggy were very accommodating camp hosts, not only were they friendly, they gave us some great sightseeing recommendations. We had a wonderful time walking on the beach, roasting hotdogs by the fire, and birdwatching eagles, herons, and more! Very clean campgrounds with great views and amenities.
Easy hike to the beach
We were driving down the coast and stopped here to see the sites. We took the trail to the beach. It is mostly flat through dense coastal forests. An easy walk of about 1 mile each way. Not much of a beach but pretty scenery and good break from driving. Was worth the stop.
Easy hike around!Mostly:)
We only hiked, the campground was full (4th of July week). From the parking lot, follow the main trail, and stay left. There are a few semi-steep hills, but easy to navigate. The trail loops to the west, and we found an offshoot small trail right to the pristine inland cove beach, and were all to ourselves! Not even another set of footprints.. tiny sand crab and Asian clams are abundant. Hiking back, we continued on the original trail which faded out and became a game trail..we probably should have gone back the way we came or followed the beach around towards the campground. Otherwise,it's a bit of a challenge getting back to the main trail to say the least. It was a great adventure and we had 3 kiddos under 11 that had a blast.
